This is just some lemon curd. Homemade and delicious. In a new Weck jar which was a special birthday gift from a sweetie.
I was thinking the other day, as I was spooning this homemade lemon curd on a waffle (left over from the kid's plate, eaten while standing and doing the dishes‚ for shame!) that in the last couple years the recipes I get the most pleasure from are really simple, everyday foods. Usually condiments. Or plain food. I enjoy making them but I think it's the frequency with which I consume them that makes me so happy. Several times a day I think how nice it is to have homemade yummy food-type items, not just a "hey, this crazy fancy dessert is so good" but more like, "oh, I love plain yogurt." I cook a lot. Like almost everything we eat is homemade, but certain foods I have always bought over the years and am now really enjoying making them from scratch.
Here's what I have being making frequently, we have been eating a lot of, and enjoying immensely. Some of these things I have been making for a few years now, others are newer additions to my simple cooking repertoire. This isn't a list of everything I make, but more a list of simple things that I am cooking now because I like and appreciate the homemade version so much more than store bought. I also hope that some of these recipes are ones the girls will be asking for when they get older, or better yet, will know how to make by heart.
I link to various posts where these are made, usually with recipes given, or links to them. It might not be super clear or obvious, but oh well. Let me know which simple foods you are making, too. I'd love to know.
